Gruesome slasher flick Smiley set for a Halloween release thanks to Fever Productions!

Do you guys remember me telling you about a slasher flick called SMILEY back in November? Of course you do. Why? Because our titular slasher is one of the most awesome slashers I've ever seen. Don't believe me? Just glance at the brand new one-sheet you find to the right!

Beautiful isn't it? Why is that crazy bastard smiling? Probably because news just broke that Fever Productions are planning on dropping SMILEY - just in time for Halloween! When exactly? October 11, 2012! Apparently the film will have a 'new highly innovative distribution plan.' What does this mean? Check it straight from the press release:

SMILEY will be made directly available to a massive global fan base by using a new hybrid approach for distribution. To see the film in theaters, the producers will be utilizing Tugg, Inc. (“Tugg”), a web-platform that lets audiences choose the films that play in their local theater. With Tugg, fans will be able to buy tickets to premiere screenings throughout the U.S. on October 11th and October 31st. Tickets for the premiere screenings will go sale on Monday, July 16th, and fans will be able to request to host their own screenings soon after.

Starting Friday, June 29th, fans will be able to pre-order SMILEY to stream on demand through the film’s website, http://www.smileymovie.com for a reduced price of five dollars. The buyers will also be prompted to select between a PG-13 or R Rated Director's Cut of the film. At 12:01am on October 11th, audiences will receive an email notification that SMILEY is now available to stream over their computers, smart TV's, smart phones and tablets in the U.S. and most international markets through Redux's Artists platform, which enables artists and filmmakers to sell video content directly to their audience across every screen. The film streams exclusively on Redux between October 11th and October 31st.

In addition to the Tugg and Redux roll out, the film will be available on more traditional platforms including DVD, Blu-Ray, iTunes, Redbox and cable VOD at a later date.

Not too shabby. Coming from director Michael Gallagher, who co-wrote the flick with Glasgow Phillips, the rundown for SMILEY reads a little something like this:

After learning of an urban legend in which a demented serial killer named Smiley can be summoned through the Internet, mentally fragile Ashley must decide whether she is losing her mind or becoming Smiley's next victim.

The intriguing slasher flick stars Caitlin Gerard, Melanie Papalia (below), Shane Dawson, Andrew James Allen, Roger Bart, Liza Weil, Michael Traynor and Keith David. Mark it on your calenders folks - This one rolls out October 11th!
